9/4/10, Barbican (Silk Street Theatre)

2hrs no interval. Cheek by Jowl. Will Keen (very impressive in Cheek by Jowl's The Changeling and in The Duchess of Malfi at the National) as Macbeth and Anastasia Hille as his Lady.

Missed it. Had to go to the Isle of Man. D liked it, and so did Kim, who took some spare tickets we had; Janet, who took my ticket, disliked it; S fell asleep and subsequently complained that Macbeth was underpowered and sometimes inaudible and that if you didn't know the play you might not have followed what was going on. D reported a very spare production and a violent one, no props, taken at a tremendous lick.
